International Student Status

Postby topsch125 » Tue Nov 29, 2011 12:23 am

What should the status for an international student be? Non-Resident Alien?

Also, what type of visa will be granted? I'm wondering what should be written for the visa type.

F-1 is the type of visa that will be granted if you attend law school in the US, but don't put it down under the "visa type" question on the LSAC application form unless you already have an F-1 visa.

The "visa type" question is asking whether you are on a visa now.

The only people who answer that question are people currently in the US on a visa. All others should leave it blank.
